Good information for anyone wanting to break into the short story market. If you are trying to get your name out there as an author, this is a great way to do it. :-)

I'm seeing a trend and I don't like it

It seems like there are a lot of books right now that have some decent information sprinkled into a bunch of filler. This is one of those. There are good tidbits but they come mixed in a base of advise that applies to creative writing in general. The author then concludes that it's the same for short fiction but must be scaled down. Duh.

Some good advice for starting off in flash fiction. However, there could have been some more information or tools for developing characters and setting. The middle part of the booklet was lacking some substance.

It has good advice for writers, and a useful list of resources for short story and flash fiction publication in the end, but overall the book lacks illustration and examples.

I picked up a couple of useful ideas from this very short book - more what we used to call a pamphlet.
